Derek loved listening to The Salvation Army’s band, who even played at his Mum’s funeral. We have many happy memories of him enjoying brass bands and singing hymns and carols, which we will sorely miss but cherish forever. For that reason, we thought it would be fitting that donations be made to the Salvation Army in lieu of flowers, so they can continue their fantastic work alongside playing their beautiful music. Thank you for your donation in memory of a beloved Dad and Grandad.
